Eddie Stinson, tragically killed in a plane crash in 1932, founded the Stinson Aircraft Company in Ohio in 1920. After his death, the company lasted another twenty years before being sold to Piper Aircraft Corporation, which only produced the Stinson 108 for a limited time.
Stinson produced 6 different models including the SM-1 Detroiter, SM-2 Junior, and Stinson 108. The SM-1 Detroiter went into production in 1926. It was the first fixed-wing aircraft for sale with a heated, soundproof cabin, and wheel brakes. The Detroiter's impressive sales were highly attributed to its stability.
The next model produced by Stinson was the SM-2 Junior, a three or four-seat high-wing monoplane for aircraft sales. This model was a refinement of the SM-1 with both business and pleasure flights in mind.
Stinson 108 was the last design produced by Stinson Aircraft Company, clearly competing against Piper and Cessna's for aircraft sales. Stinson 108 featured a large cabin, increased payload capacity and luxurious appointments.
